All for Skants, and Skants for All!

Forget skirts, ditch your shorts, toss out your pants, and lose those leggings! There’s a new bottom in town. I’m wearing a pair of skants (sweaters as pants) right now, and let me tell you — they’re the best thing since sliced bread, but even better.

The minute we at ModCloth spied skants, we knew they were the next big thing — they were just so comfortable and cute. The drape of their drop crotch and their mind-blowing versatility had us bowled over like 10 pins in the lane of Walter Ray Williams. Yowzas! We couldn’t wait to share our latest find with you, so we did a skants photoshoot!

Our Product Stylist Brittney (above) is sporting one heck of a hot uni-skants. Britney loved her skants. “It’s fiercely functional. I like the versatility — I can wear it so many different ways!” she exclaimed. 

Danielle, our Lead Photographer, wore a practical, yet pretty horse-print skants that are perfect for class or a raucous hoedown. “It’s so easy to dance in. Not only is it comfortable, but it also has a vent — it cools you down when you’re tearing up the dancefloor.” Cool you down, it may, Danielle, but it won’t stop your skants from looking super hot!

Last, Product Stylist Michelle wore a happy hour skants ensemble that’s hype-worthy and happening! The button details of her suavely monochrome skants add a polished look to her bright top, sassy shoes, and gemstone-studded clutch. Michelle was so impressed with her skants that all she could say was, “These skants are ‘trill.’ That’s short for ‘truth’ and ‘for real.’”

These gals aren’t the only people loving skants around the office. It’s been a constant subject over lunch, and everyone is trying to nab skants from the site before the sell out. Just today, I saw 35— maybe more — coworkers sporting superb-looking skants. “I love my skants!” cried Nicole, a ModStylist, who is currently wearing a pair of 80s vintage, sequined skants. “I’m recommending skants to all the customers for everything — vacations, dates, weddings, you name it! Viva los skants!”

What do you think, reader? Are you as excited about skants as we are?

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.

  8. Natasha 04/01/2010 at 11:22 am #

    Not to be overly vulgar, but it looks like they crapped their pants or their lady bits are sagging. Not a good look if you ask me.

  9. Samantha 04/01/2010 at 11:23 am #

    I think I smell an April Fool’s prank!

  10. Natasha 04/01/2010 at 11:23 am #

    I kind of like them to be honest…Don”t know if this is April Fools or not :)

  13. Sydney 04/01/2010 at 11:28 am #

    Thank goodness it’s April Fool’s Day. These pictures make me want to cry, and not in a good way.

  14. Amanda 04/01/2010 at 11:31 am #

    Oh please let this be an April Fool’s joke, seriously… Who wants walk around looking like they have a droopy diaper?! LOL!

  16. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 11:34 am #

    C’mon, guys! Where’s your indie spirit? Skants are the next big thing. We’ve spotted them on fashionistas all over!

  17. Brittany 04/01/2010 at 11:37 am #

    3 words: Sagging camel toe. GUH-ROSS.

  18. Angela (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 11:39 am #

  20. Queen Lawrence 04/01/2010 at 12:25 pm #

    It looks like they took their old shirt thy couldn’t fit into up top and they tried to see if they could fit it on their bottom if you notice their is a neck hole in the bottom on the last two. This is deffinitly
    a joke no one would go out wearing these hideous things!

  21. Alicia 04/01/2010 at 12:29 pm #

    This really scared me for a second. Those have to be the ugliest things ever made.

  22. Sam 04/01/2010 at 12:37 pm #

    Oh April Fools. I was panicking for a second thinking you guys had lost your minds and then i realized what day it was. I thought it was hilarious that you guys used shirts upside-down as pants. My favorite ones were the cardigan ones.

  23. Elise 04/01/2010 at 12:53 pm #

    LOVE the cardigan-themed ‘skants.’ I look forward to seeing them on runways next year. ;)

  24. Natasha (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 1:25 pm #

    Oh, it’s April 1st?

    I dont know, they are so flattering. I am going to dry some 3/4 sleeves and see how they look.

  25. Natalie 04/01/2010 at 1:27 pm #

    Wow you guys really had me going, especially since the first post I saw was the one with the sort of “candid” supermarket photo! Very well done, haha!

  26. Alison 04/01/2010 at 1:31 pm #

    PLEASE tell me this is an April Fools Joke. I almost cried.

  27. Christa 04/01/2010 at 1:36 pm #

    oh this was a great april fools, i almost felt a little sick thinking you were serious…love you modcloth

  28. Stephanie 04/01/2010 at 2:09 pm #

    For a split second I thought you guys were being serious. Great job, ModCloth. You gave me a very nice laugh with this April Fool’s joke.

    Hurr hurr… skants.

  29. Amber 04/01/2010 at 2:09 pm #

    HAHAHAHAH this is hilarious! The absolute best April Fools joke I can think of. Lets see how far you’ll take it today!

  30. Kristen 04/01/2010 at 2:22 pm #

    Wow, I just spent 20 minutes searching the internet for skants incredulous that people would wear such ridiculous things (then there were MC Hammer pants, so really, who knows!). Thank God you guys are joking…at least I’m going to assume you are and continue loving your site. Viva la skants!

  31. Brianna 04/01/2010 at 2:27 pm #

    both of those outfits are hideous. the first one makes me want to gouge my eyes out… seriously. no skants. that’s just ridiculous

  32. Emily 04/01/2010 at 2:30 pm #

    Oh my. Please yell “April Fools!” because this is hilarious!

  33. Michelle P (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 3:29 pm #

    The skants are really quite comfortable. It’s a look that takes you from day to evening!

  34. Lindsay (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 3:47 pm #

    Us buyers saw skants for the first time when we were in Paris in January. They’re already huge in Europe!

  35. RachelC 04/01/2010 at 4:46 pm #

    C’mon, this has GOT to be a joke! They’re soooooo ugly! :)
    “Pick your pants off the ground! Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground!” :)

  36. Piper 04/01/2010 at 6:06 pm #

    Okay, you know this is April Fools if you’re a fan of Regretsy, LOL. They’re been making fun of skants for months.

  37. Sophie 04/01/2010 at 6:11 pm #

    bahaha! love it (as a joke, that is)
    but one question… where did the “k” in skants come from??

  38. rothwoman 04/01/2010 at 6:13 pm #

    Love it! Can’t wait to wear skants on my next half marathon. They’ll look great with my visor, asics and under armour.

  39. Kit 04/01/2010 at 6:20 pm #

    Haha! Unfortunately you didn’t get me for a second. :)

  40. Britt Warner 04/01/2010 at 6:21 pm #
